Photosensitizer method to determine rate constants for the reaction of carbonate radical with organic compounds.

Abstract

Carbonate radical (CO3*-) is a powerful oxidant that is present in sunlit surface waters and in waters treated by advanced oxidation processes. The production of CO3*- in aqueous solution through oxidation of carbonate anion by excited triplet states of aromatic ketones was investigated in this study to provide new methods for the determination of rate… (More)
